Do the words crinkle-cut, curly, waffle, shoestring, sweet potato or simply “French fries” get your mouth watering? If so — National French Fry Day was made just for you!
Speaking of poutine… get inspired by this Toronto-based restaurant and never look at fries the same!
Where to Eat on National French Fry Day
Of course you could celebrate by going to In-N-Out and ordering ’em “animal style” or even pop in at your local Mexican joint for a plate of carne asada fries… it’s hard to go wrong on this national food day!
We find it difficult to recommend McDonalds after watching Morgan Spurlock trying to get ’em to mold for a few weeks with no success, but if that’s your bag we won’t stop you.
If you’re looking to get FREE French fries today, definitely make sure to check out Thrillist’s exhaustive post on the subject. They’re mostly chains, but hey, free is free.
And just think of all the dipping options out there!
National French Fry Day — Dipping Options
Most folks will opt to choose from traditional dipping options like ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise. But many will argue, the best fry sauce is one part tomato ketchup and two parts mayo. If you’ve never tried it, it may just blow your mind. In fact, over half a million people voted Heinz into rolling out their take on the highly demanded Mayochup this year.
More adventurous foodies will seek out unique flavor profiles by way of secret sauce, ranch dressing, BBQ sauce, honey mustard or even a milkshake. Yes, a milkshake. The sweet, salty and savory flavor possibilities are endless!
You’ve got to be joking (badly)!

Kermit the Frog walks into a diner, sits down and reads the menu for a bit.
“Oh, hi mith. I’d like an order of French flies and a small Croak please.”
Sorry, we’re all out of French flies. But you know, the cook did just mention something about getting in some fresh frog legs today…
